I am Kate Castrogiovanni, owner of Well Kneaded Massage and I have been a massage therapist since 2005. Before choosing massage therapy as a career, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a degree in Exercise Science and worked as a personal trainer for a year before attending massage school at the Pennsylvania Institute of Massage Therapy in Quakertown, Pa. I began an interest in massage as a young child massaging my father's feet and back on a regular basis. I was able to strengthen my hands as an athlete playing field hockey, basketball and throwing javelin and shot-put in track and field. Little did I know that all that training and strengthening would enhance my career down the road! I don't, however solely rely on physical strength. Throughout my time in school, my mother was very sick with cancer. She gave me a new appreciation for touch and massage as a gentle means for comfort and pain management. Once, when rubbing my mom's neck and shoulders I was trying to "show off" what I'd learned in school and mom stopped me saying, "Kate, just rub me..." I learned then that not everyone wants the same thing from a massage and it is my intention to listen carefully to the client and their body to give a truely Well Kneaded Massage. I wholeheartedly intend to go into each massage with the client's needs and desires in mind. Every body is different and I treat each one as such. I look forward to the opportunity to help others. I am happy to be working among other wonderful, caring massage therapists also at Well Kneaded Massage.
